Re: ProJo Does it Again

I made the point in one of my posts in this thread that one of the reasons for the disparate treatment of the two game stories is that Bill wrote a big story on the Brown game and an algorithm wrote the URI blurb. But that is not an excuse, it is specifically part of my issue. If circumstances leave...
